Papa Johns Menu

The Papa Johns menu has a good variety of specialty pizzas, but seems a little more limited in toppings, crusts and other food items than Dominos and Pizza Hut.

That isn't necessarily a bad thing unless you're looking for lots of variety at the favorite pizza delivery place. But does the selection stack up?

Papa John's seems to stick to its specialty pizza. You won't find pasta or sandwiches at Papa John's (at least not where we live), but you will find a few side items like wings and breadsticks.

Let's see if the pizza selection makes up for a lack of other stuff...

Specialty Pizzas

Our mouth is watering a tad after writing about Papa John's specialty pizzas. They offer a nice variety of flavors and toppings for all kinds of pizza lovers. The specialty pizzas include:

  • The Works - pepperoni, ham, spicy Italian sausage, onions & green peppers, mushrooms and ripe black olives.
  • The Meats - pepperoni, sausage, beef, hickory-smoked bacon and ham. Yep, lots o' meat.
  • Spicy Italian - pepperoni and a double portion of spicy Italian sausage for a spicy kick.
  • Garden Fresh - fresh-sliced onions & green peppers, gourmet baby portabella mushrooms, ripe black olives and Roma tomatoes. Great option for you vegetarians and healthier eaters.
  • Tuscan Six Cheese - authentic six-cheese blend of mozzarella, Parmesan, Romano, Asiago, provolone and Fontina, Italian herb seasonings.
  • Spinach Alfredo - rich blend of spinach and garlic Parmesan Alfredo sauce.
  • BBQ Chicken & Bacon - covered in BBQ sauce and piled high with grilled all-white chicken, hickory-smoked bacon and onions.
  • Hawaiian BBQ Chicken - covered in BBQ sauce, grilled all-white chicken, hickory-smoked bacon and onions, and then topped with pineapple. (We're intrigued and reaching for the phone.)


Papa John's doesn't get crazy with different crust options. They offer the standard original crust, thin crust and pan crust.

We know they were offering a whole wheat crust on large pizzas for awhile (because yes, we ordered it) and it was pretty good, but like we've mentioned before, a wheat crust probably isn't going to be a long-term popular option for most pizza lovers and we're not seeing it on the Papa John's menu anymore (although it may be available in certain locations.)

Papa John's crust is handmade and never frozen. It wins our vote!


Papa Johns menu offers all the typical toppings. Nothing too out of the ordinary on their topping list.

We like that their veggies are always fresh. Their green peppers and onions are purchased in local markets and the olives are grown in Spain.


You can order Papa John's online and on your cell phone. What's nice is if you order the same thing every time, you can save it as a favorite and it you don't have to rebuild it every time you log in to order.

The only downside...the password's they give you are obnoxious and we haven't figured out how to change them, requiring us to click "forgot password" every time and wait for an email with a new obnoxious password!
